Hollywood's job market dimmed last month.

After three consecutive months of year-over-year job gains, the entertainment industry posted a nearly 4% decline in jobs in May, state employment figures show.

The motion picture and sound recording category -- which includes those working at the major studios, post-production houses and on film crews - accounted for 112,100 wage and salary jobs in May, down from 116,500 jobs a year earlier and 128,500 jobs in April.

The figures are subject to revision and do not count those who work as freelancers or independent contractors.
